Other Names

Barnsley Hills

Last Known StatusOpen

This offroad park offers about 20+ miles of trails that wind through 865 acres of hardwood forest and hills. The park has a designated gravel staging area with restroom facilities.

The trails are open to ATVs, UTVs and dirt bikes and cater to all skill riding levels. Most of the terrain consists of gentle elevation changes and hard packed gravel dirt roads with the occasional mud pit.

There is no fee charged to park or ride but all riders must wear a helmet. The trails are open daily except during holidays and deer hunting season but may close on short notice due to inclement weather. Call before you haul.
